Documenting Pontins a holiday camp in Blackpool, after its closure and before its demolition. Revisiting a project I shot nearly 10 years ago. I am currently reading Sunrise by Victoria Hislop about the abandoned city of Varosha, in Cyprus. Which was once a famous seaside resort and now entry to it is forbidden since the Turkish invasion in 1974. Blackpool is however now regenerating itself with a £100 million investment. These images are resonant of a time gone by. The images are a mixture of images stored on my hard drive and from my development sketchbooks for this series.
